george bush, you cannot used enhanced interrogation. >>brian: that is not what america does. >>steve: exactly right. this administration, we found out through a 15-page white paper that has been released -- nbc published it -- this administration and our government, rather than water board people, we kill them. the hypocrisy is amazing. when you take a look at how our president was talking a couple of years ago regarding enhanced interrogation techniques, in favor now of just killing them, it's stunning. watch. >> under my administration, the united states does not torture. my administration is going to operate in a way that leaves no doubt that we do not torture and that we abide by the geneva conventions. water boarding is torture. it's contrary to america's traditions. it's contrary to our ideals. that's not who we are. that's not how we operate. and anybody who actually read about and understands the practice of water boarding would say that that is torture. and that's not something we do. >>gretchen: it boils down to the fact that many people believed that one of the reasons thi

-year time. all it does tomorrow it says to the president tell us when you'ryourbudget balances. it is important to do that because we have our principled solutions with the program. liz: used a dozen state when the budget would be balanced, is that it? >> we have had to end dollars deficit of the past four years in the past for budgets by this president have never come into balance ever in the 75 year time frame we talk about budgets. the american people need to know that. it is important the president gets mad because then we could talk about the positive solutions and the programs the president believes don't need to be strengthened or saved or reformed or restructured in order to make it so they are able to apply to the american people. liz: under this white house would not be surprised if viewers felt they are stuck in the rerun of a bad movie but they can't get out of and the issue is the president is now about his legacy, positioning himself to be a ronald reagan type performer. he is big hubris, big government spender and the high cost of affordable health care coming in
unless the president wants to come to talk to us about meaningful cuts. the house has passed two bills now. this president is basically says no and does not want to talk to us. he needs to come talk to us. otherwise, it will happen and it will be very tough on a lot of different areas. lori: one silver lining in this national small business association, or economic report inspired our conversation this morning. 73% of small business reporting the ability to garner financing. is that enough to rehabilitate to your satisfaction in this industry? >> what we are seeing is a lot of small businesses are not expanding because of their concerns about the economy. it is very good news. when it comes to access to capital. a majority of those businesses will just wait and see what happens. they do not want to put their necks out on the line and get burned by this economy. lori: a pleasure speaking with you this afternoon, congressman. melissa: some big changes coming to your mailbox. saturday mail delivery will and and in all this. packages will continue to be delivered on saturdays. post offices
immigrant is not accurate and therefore should not be used. really? watch this. >> i hope no one uses the term illegal immigrants here today. our citizens -- the people in this country are not illegal, they are out of status. they are new americans that are are immigrants. >> sean: political correctness. looks like mr. conyers has take and page from the obama playbook because over the last four years we have seen the president master the art of dictating which words, which phrases we can and can mott use. for example remember the war on terror is now an overseas contingency operation. terrorist attacks are now man caused disasters and saying islamic radicalism is off limits because it might hurt somebody's little feelings. i may be old fashioned but i believe in call things what they are. a terrorist is a terrorist and someone who enters the country in an unlawful manner is an illegal immigrant. instead of giving us the vocabulary lessons maybe congressman conyers should be protecting the borders and making that his top priority. after all, american lives are at risk. that is all the

. >> somebody is going to get wealthy. thanks for joining us. >> "america live" starts right now. >> megyn: we begin with a fox news alert. a bombshell report on the president's health care law, finding that a key pledge will not hold true for millions and millions of americans. welcome to "america live" everyone, i'm alisyn camerota in for megyn kelly today. despite the problems, if americans stick with their player-based insurance plans and doctors, now, the nan partisan congressional budget office expected that some americans would be off their current plans, as of august, predicted that would be 4 million. just yesterday, the cbo has nearly doubled that prediction and are now saying that 7 to 8 million americans will likely be dropped from their employer's plan in the near future. so, what changed? let's ask chris stirewalt. our editor and host of power play on foxnews.com/live. do we know 3 million more people, jump about 75% from the cbo's original prediction will not be able to stay on the employer based plans? >> yes, for two reasons. reason number one, that there are penalty for emplo

't giving up yet. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." cutting our pay. that's how one u.s. officer says u.s. troops view the recommendation for a smaller pay increase in 2014. no one goes into the military to get rich but most servicemen and women need every dollar in their paycheck. so worried that next paycheck may be smaller is not going over well among the troops. our pentagon correspondent barbara starr has the details. she's working the story. barbara, what's going on? >> wolf, in this town, there's nothing that causes more anxiety in budget politics than the concept of cutting the pay for the troops. but that is exactly what is on the table if congress and the president cannot reach an agreement on a spending plan. the troops usually are happy to see defense secretary leon panetta, smiles and handshakes all around. but days before he leaves office, panetta has bad news. he's proposing less money in their paycheck next year. panetta, a savvy washington operative in budget politics, is leaving it to congress to figure out how not to cut pay and keep thousands of defen
